Straight from the Heart
Bryan Adams Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I could start dreamin' but it never ends
As long as you're gone we may as well pretend
I've been dreamin'
Straight from the heart

You say it's easy but who's to say
That we'd be able to keep it this way
But it's easier
Coming straight from the heart

Give it to me straight from the heart
Tell me we can make another start
You know I'll never go
As long as I know
It's comin' straight from the heart

I see you on the street some other time
And all our words would just fall out of line
While we're dreamin'
Straight from the heart

Oh give it to me straight from the heart
Tell me we can make one more start
You know I'll never go
As long as I know
It's coming straight from the heart, oh

Don't ever leave my darling

Whoa oh straight from the heart
Tell me we can make one more start
You know I'll never go
As long as I know
Give it to me now
Straight from the heart
Tell me we can make one more start
You know I'll never go
As long as I know
It's coming straight from the heart
Give it to me, oh no, oh no
Straight from the heart
You know I'll never go




As long as I know
It's coming straight from the heart

"STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART"

I could start dreamin' but it never ends
As long as you're gone we may as well pretend
I've been dreamin'
Straight from the heart
You say it's easy but who's to say
That we'd be able to keep it this way?
But it's easier
Comin' straight from the heart
Ohh, give it to me straight from the heart
Tell me we can make another start
You know I'll never go - as long as I know
It's comin' straight from the heart
I see you on the street some other time
And all my words would just fall out of line
While we're dreamin'
Straight from the heart
Ohh, give it to me straight from the heart
Tell me we can make one more start
You know I'll never go - as long as I know
It's comin' straight from the heart
Oh
Don't ever leave me darlin'
Ohh, straight from the heart
Tell me we can make one more start
You know I'll never go- as long as I know
You'll give it to me now
Straight from the heart
Tell me we can make one more start
You know I'll never go-as long as I know
It's coming straight from the heart
Give it to me
Oh no, oh no
Straight from the heart
You know I'll never go-as long as I know
It's coming straight from the heart

São tantas lembranças e sentimentos que esta canção gera dentro de mim que nem consigo expressá-los em palavras.
Divago em meio a desejos e emoções que, com seus matizes, me embevecem a alma
e viajo para um tempo onde tudo parecia ser mais simples, mais puro e mais belo
Algo, quem sabe, que vem realmente "direto de um coração" inquieto que almeja a completude
que anseia usufruir dessa tal felicidade que extasia o espírito e que nos deixa em estado permanente de júbilo
A melodia nos embala em acordes de amor, que nos inspira e que extrai o que há de melhor em nós
Faz a verdadeira essência brotar "diretamente do coração", do âmago para onde todas as paixões convergem
e de onde brotam todos os sonhos, expectativas e lamentos...
Bryan nos convida à contemplação através dessa canção que atravessou gerações e nos cativou com essa voz rouca e tocante que fala tão bem dessa dádiva chamada Amor!
Embalamo-nos nos seus versos e estrofes que, numa primeira leitura, podem até parecer desconexos e sem sentido
Como a vida que vagueia, aparentemente a esmo, nesse cosmos infinito, à mercê do cronos, como algo sem importância
mas que, no fundo, expressa a fagulha de Uma Chama Maior que a direciona a um sentido sublime
Eu amo essa canção. Ela me deixa num estado de ternura lisérgica,
entorpecido por aquilo que caracteriza e define toda a minha complexidade humana!
